• Dear 2016: You Were Damn Good to Me

    Dear 2016, You’ve been getting a lot of hate. And man, I get it. You were super rough in a lot of aspects. You were violent, hateful, dangerous, misogynistic, unrelenting and incredibly selfish.

I couldn’t even be fucked to try to look any cuter for this week’s photo. Just a few more weeks to go …
